Penguin men fall in overtime, 87-83

ROCHESTER, Mich. — Senior forward Naz Bohannon got the first triple-double in Youngstown State men’s basketball history and senior Garrett Covington scored a career-high 30 points, but it wasn’t enough for the Penguins as they fell 87-83 in overtime to Oakland in the Horizon League tournament quarterfinals.

The Penguins fall to 15-12 on the season.

Bohannon’s milestone-setting statline was 14 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists, shooting 5-of-8 from the floor. Covington shot 12-of-21 from the floor and tied a career-high with five 3-pointers. Junior Darius Quisenberry scored 18 points and freshman Shemar-Rathan Mayes added 10 points.

After rallying back from 11-point deficits twice in the second half, the Penguins took a 73-21 lead with 1:41 remaining in the game. The Golden Grizzlies tied it back up at 73-73, and Quisenberry’s game-winning shot fell short to force an overtime period, where Oakland outscored the Penguins 14-10 to win and advance to the Horizon League semifinals.

Rashad Williams led Oakland with 22 points and Jalen Moore tacked on 20.
